Croix de Labrie
Latest notes and latest articles.
"Still among the most endearing and charming Bordeaux wines, the wines of Château Croix de Labrie generally offer a smooth texture and very intense fruitiness. The 2009 vintage (around 300 cases produced), 100% Merlot, offers notes of blackcurrant smoky and raspberry liqueur mixed with touches of liquorice, graphite and wood smoke.This intense and unctuous wine of low acidity and soft tannins is a hedonistic Saint-Émilion, an explosion of fruit to taste in its 12 to First 15 years. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to find this remarkable Bordeaux red. "
“Too bad that only 300 cases of this 100% Merlot wine were produced. I had a bottle of the 2000 vintage, which was a breathtaking extraordinary wine with a sumptuous texture. "
